This is the tote bag in development for the Rusted Gingham show…plus I need some soft lines at Homestead. The bag is stenciled and (gasp!) glittered. The flowers are die-cut and hand-stamped. The tag is distressed, hand-stamped and boasts a crown wax seal that my son says looks a little like a pumpkin. I’m quite fond of it. Only time will tell if anyone else likes it!
Yes. I do own a record player, but I don’t plan on listening to these oldies. Their covers are frame-worthy. Don’t you agree? I picked them up at an estate sale yesterday, found some frames on sale and, well, I framed those puppies. They’re shop-bound tomorrow.
Linking up with Junker Newbie’s Would You Buy It Wednesday!
Inspired by a number of art classes and the works of many talented women, my version of the cuff bracelet was born today. Seriously easy. Seriously cute. And a nice diversion after a sweaty day of junking yesterday. I may never take it off. And I may become a hermit until, say, November. Put a fork in me. I’m overdone.
Yep, it’s time… Now through August 20, 2011, take 20% off your purchases from Checkered Past at both Homestead Handcraft locations in San Antonio, Texas. Sorry, but discount does not apply to items being put on layaway. Simply show a copy of this post at the counter to receive your discount. OR… if your phone’s not smart enough, you can print out a copy of this post. Also… feel free to share this information with your peeps. I’m too hot and bothered to put coupons in the store, so I guess you could call this my lazy days of summer sale. And just so you know… I just dropped off a bunch of really kickin’ letter jackets and varsity sweaters at the Thousand Oaks location. And of course… no photos. Get over it. It’s a sale!!!
